Forum visibility and readability
I have created two categories with several forums within, and I’m trying to set up a specific behavior. On the main index, I want all forums to be visible by everyone, even unregistered guests.
Some of these forums should only be visible for unregistered guest, but they shouldn’t be able to enter or even read or post within these specific forums. When they try to enter they should get a message like “You must be logged in to view this forum”.
Logged in members, on the other hand should be able to enter, read and post within these forums.
I have several problems in achieving this. First of all, I only found the possibility to set a forum as private, but that causes the forum only to be visible by logged in members.
So my next step was to have a look at user roles, which caused a lot of confusion. So I installed the plugin “bbp-capabilities”, in intention to be able to set up user roles. The problem is, it only provides the possibility to define the capabilities of a registered user, but not for guests. I’d need to know how I can define roles on a global level, instead of editing every single user and not being able to define what guests can do.
I hope this is clear enough to let you understand what my problem is, I’m German, so please be patient. If there’s something unclear, I’ll try my best to clarify it.
I also asked this question in the German support forum for bbpress, but I got no answer so far, so I’d be very thankful for help.
Thanks in advance,
